2017 Sebastiani Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley
90 Points - Robert Parker
Deep ruby red in color with elegant aromas of dried cranberries, bergamot tea and vanilla wafer. Ripe and round tannins fill the mouth with flavors of black cherry, baking spices and dried herbs. The finish lingers with bright berry fruit, loamy earth and a slight sweetness imparted by the oak. While appealing in its youth, this wine will age wonderfully over the next few years.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
14 months in 20% new French oak
The 2017 growing season started off with record setting rainfalls, delaying bud break from years past. Spring and summer experienced a mixture of foggy, warm and windy conditions. The summer months were moderately warm allowing the grapes to mature at an ideal pace.
